Powerful directory listing parser
The original FTP standard defined no standard directory listing format.
As a result, listings used by different FTP server on different operating
system are very diverse.
Fortunately, you don't have to worry about this with Rebex FTP/SSL.
It's reliable listing parser has been under continuous development since 2003
and can detect and parse virtually any
common directory listing format used by Unix, Windows, Netware, DOS, VMS, IBM 4690 or Tandem Guardian FTP servers.
Even if you come across a rare format which is not yet supported out-of-the-box,
can still easily add your own
custom directory listing parser.

Hear from customers
It took me 10 minutes to plug it into our C# application and voila, passive FTP connections, excellent communication and error codes / messages when things don’t connect properly via our VPN.
Well done on an excellent product. I’m a software developer of some 18 years and I’m quite sceptical of 3rd party components, however, this FTP library is excellent. Can’t fault it.
I can Highly Recommend it.
